James Tidwell

James brings an impressive range of technical, analytical and project management skills and experience to the FMS team. James has served in increasingly responsible technical and managerial positions throughout his military and professional career and brings 20+ years of extensive EMF/RF knowledge base to FMS. James is a technical expert in the characterization, design, and deployment of low-EMI infrastructure. He is particularly adept at the iterative modeling and optimization of Quasi-DC sources, such as magnets, light-rail, and elevators. James is recognized for his project work on many high profile, domestic and international projects including World Trade Center (pre/post), Pacific Northwest National Laboratory – PSF and EMSL Campuses, Australian Institute of Nano-Technology, Qatar – R&D Complex, and semi-conductor and broadcast facilities. James’ professional management approach and attention to detail has increased FMS visibility as the “Go To” EMF/EMI consultant firm, with a proven cost-efficient deployment reputation.



FMS as the EMF/EMI Consultant designed and installed the passive and active mitigation systems for this newly established interdisciplinary organization under the Office of Research of the University of California Irvine (UCI) to house state of the art electron-microscope labs (4 imaging cells). The project required analysis of interference potential of all internal and external emission sources, which included vehicle and facility elevators (DC), broadband electrical system (AC) sources, etc.

Harvard LISE

FMS was engaged as the project’s EMI Consultant by the project architect (Wilson Architects) to conduct an electromagnetic field (EMF) analysis in an existing laboratory (shell space) located in the basement level of the Harvard CNS facility.


Seattle Children’s Research Institute is currently in the construction phase of ”Building Cure”, a 540,000 square foot research building, which will be dedicated to developing therapies for children with diseases such as Cancer, Type 1 Diabetes and Sickle Cell Anemia.

Un. of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Electrical and Computer Engineering Bldg.

FMS was engaged to conduct a thorough assessment of the building’s design for EMI interference threat concerns to sensitive research equipment. A document review and extensive 3-Dimension computer simulation studies were conducted to evaluate EMF emissions from the building’s electrical distribution, mechanical and other systems.


Over its 20 years, FMS has successfully completed hundreds of EMI projects which included a diverse range of consulting and mitigation services.
